DayOne Response ramps up disaster relief waterbag project
In 18 short months, NCIIA E-Team DayOne Response has moved from a student team with a cool idea to a company with a disaster-relief product being field tested by the US and Thai Marine Corps. Here's the story in pictures:
May 2009: awarded a $20K E-Team grant.
Nov. 2009: attended Advanced I2V workshop to develop business strategy.
March 2010: showcased the waterbag at Open Minds.
April 2010: incorporated as DayOne Response, and wins a contract with the US Navy to continue R&D on the waterbag via a joint technology exercise between the US and Thai Marines. The waterbag was one of the few technologies in that exercise to meet US military objectives for Humanitarian Aid and Disaster Relief missions.
